This week begins with a lengthy opening, featuring discussion of Sofia Coppolaâs travails with the studio system, a long overdue film on the Suffragette movement, and a retrospective of Al Pacino in the wake of the release of âDanny Collins.â There are also reviews of disaster action movie âSan Andreas,â Iranian vampire flick âA Girl Walks Home Alone At Night,â and romantic comedy âMan Up,â which propelled us into a digression concerning the politics of internet dating. Elsewhere, Cal is forced into a Neil Diamond-style rendition, a certain Antipodean singer narrowly avoids a dreaded Ehle Omission, while Pete disses the vocal talents of a British redhead, much to Calâs chagrin.
The weekâs news: Some Birthday wishes, plus news on Sofia Coppolaâs exit from âThe Little Mermaid,â the opener of this yearâs London Film Festival, and a chat about Al Pacino!
